The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute is housed in the contemporary Hadyn Ellis Building and is home to cutting-edge facilities and specialist equipment that enable our researchers to remain at the forefront of cancer stem cell research.
The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute is a self-contained, custom-designed facility within the modern, purpose-built Hadyn Ellis Building. It is located at the heart of the new Maindy Innovation Campus, just a short walk from the Cathays Campus where the School of Biosciences is housed on the edge of the historic city centre.
Opened in 2013 the £30m Hadyn Ellis Building is a hub for major, cutting-edge research in a number of fields, and brings together experts in conditions such as stem cell cancer research, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease, including the MRC Neuropsychiatric Centre for Genetics and Genomics.
The building also provides a space for greater public involvement in our work, and boasts on-site conference and seminar facilities including a lecture theatre that can accommodate 130 people.
Our laboratory houses a range of specialist equipment, which enables us to remain at the forefront of cancer stem cell research, offering state-of-the-art flow cytometry and imaging facilities, including a Zeiss PALM MicroBeam laser microdissector. The Institute also has full access to additional expertise and cutting-edge equipment via the Technology Research Hubs at the nearby School of Biosciences. In particular, the imaging facilities include a new Zeiss LSM880 Airyscan confocal microscope with super-resolution capability, a recently installed Zeiss Lightsheet Z.1 system and a new Biospace Lab PhotonIMAGER Optima for whole-animal fluorescence and luminescence imaging.
